Assume that G is a solvable group whose elementary abelian sections are all finite. Suppose, further, that p is a prime such that G fails to contain any subgroups isomorphic to Cp∞. We show that if G is nilpotent, then the pro-p completion map induces an isomorphism for any discrete -module M of finite p-power order. For the general case, we prove that G contains a normal subgroup N of finite index such that the map is an isomorphism for any discrete -module M of finite p-power order. Moreover, if G lacks any Cp∞-sections, the subgroup N enjoys some additional special properties with respect to its pro-p topology.
